Fan favorite author Lia Davis is back with a steamy M/M novella: HIS GUARDED HEART.
Being Senator Beckett’s bodyguard while staying out of his bed becomes Judd’s biggest challenge as passion ignites between the men. HIS GUARDED HEART originally debuted in the Goodreads Best M/M Anthology of 2014, UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER, and has been re-edited for this release.
Senator Beau Beckett refuses to lay low because of a few death threats on postcards. His new bodyguard isn’t going to convince him otherwise. At least not until the threat becomes real and his four year old daughter’s safety is jeopardized. He has no choice but to work with his cocky and sexy Agent Wolfe to stay alive.
Federal Security Protection agent, Judd Wolfe doesn’t play by the rules. His out-of-the-box way of getting things done lands him a babysitting job. But being Senator Beckett’s bodyguard while staying out of his bed becomes his biggest challenge as passion ignites between the men.
Even for a novella, this one is short. Beau and Judd do have a bit of a past, but only a superficial relationship until they meet again during the events of this book. They jump into bed very quickly, and the bad guys are captured just as speedily…
Yes, it’s a quick read and a steamy one, and the time you’d typically spend while sitting and waiting for an appointment is about all the time you’ll need to finish it. To be truly satisfying, though, it needs a lot more character and plot development.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and three equally special kitties, a wife to her soul mate, and a lover of romance. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes and very humid summers. But it’s her home and she loves it!
An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very active imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She ventured into the world of writing and publishing in 2008 and loves it more than she imagined. Writing is stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world that she created, leaving real life where it belongs.
Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.
